Hi all-

Is there any other database for one to look up IBM keyboards by part number? I know there's one here but couldn't find the p/n I have, which is 0484530. Does anyone know which keyboard it is?

Thanks!

This is typewriter keyboard, mounts are similar to cherry mx, but not exactly the same.
If I remember correctly switches are rubber domes with slider (I still got that keyboard somewhere, but it might take me a while to actually find it).

Seems like a variation of G80-0454 - but some keys' legends don't match. If you end up getting it, please share pics! :)

Apologies for the low-quality image. The seller says that one is "very heavy". Do any of you know what some of these are? Are any of them worthwhile?

Two in the bottom left look like Gateway Anykeys, bottom right looks like a Keytronic, the one above the two Anykeys might be peerless or domes, same with the one next to it.


The only ones I am almost certain of are the Anykeys.

Chicony of some sort for sure. Besides that, no idea. Might not even be a Chicony but sure as hell looks like one.


What is the PC btw?

I don't really know, but the computer has the Compaq logo. What do you think I will find inside the keyboard? The last thing I want to get is something whit shitty Mitsumi switches or some sort of MX clone.

If it's a Chicony it could be pretty much anything xD

I noticed that all Chicony keyboards came with a big ass enter key, so maybe a Dell AT101 or some other banana shapped brother? This keyboard is freaking me out. Thanks for the help anyways.

Chiconys have been posted here in the past with ANSI and ISO enter keys, so that's still a possibility.

I don't think it's chicony. Different lights. (shifted to the left) I think, that's some normal bigfoot like dell. Also it have missing line above f keys that chicony boards have.

That was VERY useful, that's not a Chicony, nor a Dell nor whatever normal bigfoot, the led cluster is weirdly sized compared to the other common models.

I searched half of deskthority wiki and spend some time on research online. I found nothing similar. It will be funny if it turns out that it is some crappy rubber dome

In the 225013 picture, the one on the right looks very Keytronic. That "It's almost a Model M" case with the little hooks in the LED panel area is distinctily theirs.

So it's probably a rubber domr since it looks a little to recent for foam and foil right?

Front of the keyboard.

Back of the keyboard says "IBM" on the model, but it doesn't look like a Model M or Model F that I've seen.

Top one is something with NMB dome with slider, not worth. Bottom doesn't look much better but I have no idea what it has (probably domes tho).

Hi guys, i am mostly an user of the Discord channel and never use the Forum. Yesterday, i was looking at yahoo auction japan (which i avoided during the pandemy to not loose sleep on not being able to bid) and i found a very weird switch on a PC-98 Keyboard. Bear with me that i am probably not remembering everything about BBcode due to me not using forum in a long time. It's an official NEC Keyboard with the sole identification being a sticker saying "4X61576YJ" (google give no result). Before anybody waste 20min on the Wiki by checking every switch with alps mount, please note that both me and sneaky checked the wiki with alps mount category and found nothing. So it's probably a unknow switch (Kinda like the Panasonic Linear Cuckling Spring which i need to put on the wiki).
